I'm not gone. Just traveling!

I'm so sorry that I've been absent! I spent the better part of a week in Utah, was home for one day running around like a chicken with it's head cut off, and then left for New York! I haven't had internet for the majority of this time either. I've been spending all day at this Sustainable Beauty Summit for the past few days and I've learned SO MUCH. I can't want to share some stuff with you. About both trips! I'll do a post on each with some pictures next week! School is going to kick my ass when I get back, but I'm excited about so many things it's hard for it to bring me down. I'm inspired to get organized and get on a routine just so I can accomplish more. There's going to be big things happening and I'm going to have to balance it all with school. It's a little daunting, but the excitement definitely overshadows that aspect of it. I promise, I'll be back soon!

Hello, Denver.

Just sitting here at the Denver airport. They have free internet. How nice! Our next plane should be boarding soon, onward to Salt Lake City! Then a two hour drive to Park City... I always get so excited thinking we're going to be there and then remember there's still a car trip left. My boarding pass this morning was B 22, my favorite number. I think it's a sign of good things to come, or at least I hope so!

Feelin' turquoise.

I apologize for my lack of writing. I'm still unfortunately under the weather. Better soon hopefully! I leave Wednesday for Park City, Utah!

Watch the storm roll in.

I would love this. To sit at the writing table and spin stories or tell truths while staring at the ocean. Leave the doors open, let the breeze in, taste the salt. Sit outside and smell the rain coming. Watch the storm roll in over the ocean. Pick small indigo flowers for the kitchen and make dinner, singing songs, watching the lightning in the distance. A summer escape to a peaceful stormy shore. Listen to the thunder rumble across the water, right to my doorstep. Feel the release of the weight of the world. Watch it all let go.

Under the weather.

I apologize for my small absence. I haven't been feeling well and declined fairly rapidly. Today I went to the doctor and found out that I do indeed have the flu. So I may be gone from blogging a little longer as I try to just rest up and drink fluids and take vitamins as much as possible. It's actually midterm week which was just a horrific time for me to get sick, and I was trying to just push through and accomplish everything even in miserable circumstance, but the doctor told me I could go into pneumonia very easily. I'm supposed to go back immediately if my chest gets to feeling any heavier or I get any worse so they can do a chest x-ray. I just can't risk that. So alas, I admit defeat. Hope you all stay healthy and well!

What seems to help you feel better when you're really sick?

And you never know, when it starts.

Until there's fog inside the glass around your summer heart.

I am totally a legit medical googler.

Matthew told me earlier that he thought he pulled an eye muscle sneezing.

Mmhmm. Probably.

Well he just came down from a nap and his eyelid is now swollen with an obvious bump near his lash line. We decided it must be a stye. But he didn't really know much about styes. So of course, logically, I googled it for him.

"An external stye (pronounced /ˈstaɪ/) or hordeolum (/hɔrˈdiːələm/) is an infection of the sebaceous glands of Zeis at the base of the eyelashes, or an infection of the apocrine sweat glands of Moll."

Sebaceous glands of Zeis? Apocrine sweat glands of Moll? Is it just me or does that sound like Greek mythology? And also, I think I may be vague and tell people he as a hordeolum. That sounds much worse. And embarrassing.

"Styes are characterized by an acute onset and usually short in duration (7-10 days without treatment)."

Can someone tell Wikipedia that 7-10 days isn't really a short duration?

I then proceeded to show him pictures of worst case scenarios and informed him it could possibly burst. While laughing hysterically. Mostly because of his reaction. But partially because he could end up looking temporarily deformed.

Clearly, I am such a good roommate.

Been thinking bout the moon.
